Recently after posting some photos from when we were up in Big Bear, a lady in Missouri who reads my blog asked me to make her a cowl just like the one she saw me wearing in photos. She also wanted a Bloomie in the colors of her Alma Mater to wear along with it. I was able to find the same yarn, and made her the exact same cowl. Then made her Mustard Seed Bloomie.
I have been very busy in my sewing room making some Christmas Bloomies. I have several that have been commissioned, and then hope to show some in my Etsy shop too If you would like to order one directly through me, without Etsy, just let me know. They are 15.00 for a color I keep in stock, and 20.00 for special orders. My daughter has ordered 3 reds for teacher's gifts. And her salon owner ordered some Christmas colors for the shop. I will put up pictures of my Christmas colors by the weekend. I have two reds, two greens, and two whites. Of course, many other colors are available too. Mustard Seed being one of the most popular right now for Fall and winter. Here is a close up of the Mustard Bloomie I have just sent off to Regan.
The price of the cowl scarf is 45.00. To add a Bloomie, 15.00. But for the month of December, if you order both it will be 50.00, plus shipping if it needs to ship.
In other news, the very day after I said my Brown Leghorn was the only chicken not laying eggs yet, I got my first white egg. And could have only been from Beatrice!
Can you see the small area of white where her ears are? That is her earlobe. This is how you determine the color of eggs that your chicken will lay. White earlobes lay white eggs, brown ear lobes lay brown eggs. But my blue/green layers don't have blue/green earlobes, they have green feet. I have 5 hens, and I am getting 4 eggs daily. I am waiting for my 5 for 5 day!
They are adding up pretty quickly now! I think they are so pretty with all of those colors!
Yesterday I sadly removed all of my Fall decor, in preparation for Christmas. So the week will be spent cleaning and getting ready to take all of my Christmas goodies down and begin to put Grovers Grove into the Holiday Spirit.
I am enjoying seeing all of your homes getting dressed in their Christmas finery. I may even go crazy and turn on the Christmas music while I work!!!
Til next time friends....
